Once were nights that seemed less stark
You saw stars shining, each hopeful spark
Showing there still was light.
Now all I see is starless night
And dark upon dark.
Each week on Sunday the Monkey Man gives a challenge to write a poem in only 160 characters. Like writing a tweet – it takes some doing to convey thought in so few words. Come join the fun!
